Farmers and market vendors at the Burnscreek makeshift market are calling on the responsible authorities to locate and construct a new market place for them to sell their produce.
The entrance of the Burnscreek area to the Kastom Gaden area is currently the space used by the farmers to conduct their daily sales.
A spokesperson for the group Evalin Faili told the Solomon Star yesterday that they are in need of a new market area to sell their produce and foodstuffs.
“We are calling on the government if they could help us allocate a space to erect a market building for us.
“This place is not safe and our lives are at risk because this is where vehicles are passing through.
“We are in need of a bigger space,” Mrs Faili told this paper.
Another market vendor Mary Tamae also echoed similar sentiments.
“We have been waiting for a proper place to sell our produce for far too long now.
“This place is not safe for us since the day we started do our marketing here.
“If all the farmers are come together to sell their products, we don’t have much space.
“So we are calling on the responsible people to listen very carefully to our request,” Mrs Tamae said.
This paper understands that the venue is also accommodating marker producers and farmers from Sun Valley, Henderson and also Alligator Creek.
